Today, every website and company wishes that its content not only reaches the right person but also strikes a chord with them to be able to be an impactful piece of web content. But, there are multiple challenges in this pursuit. Every web reader today is exposed to such high levels of web content on a daily basis that either most of them do not read the whole piece, or if they do, it is very difficult to stand apart.
The biggest and first challenge for any content published online is to keep your consumer engaged and interested enough so that he not only reads, but also registers your content.
Hence, we bring some specific hacks on how can you boost your content and ensure that you reach the right audience at the right time and get the right response from them each time.
- Know your audience – the most important aspect of web content creation is that you must know your target audience. Not only does the quality of your content vary with the target but also the language, tone and analogies that you give. Hence every content decision must be made on a solid insight of who your consumer is, what are his habits, what does he like/dislike or rather what does he seek in any content that he comes across, what appeals to him and what does not. Making consumer profiles of your various target consumer can help you create relevant and focussed content
- Be sure of the quality – the best way to predict the response received by your content is to strike a correlation with the content quality. In order to ensure that you deliver the right content each time, you need to be your own critic. The easiest way to do this is to step into a reader’s shoes and ask yourself if you would be interested in reading the piece that you wrote and would you still be scrolling and reading to the bottom.
- Create a self-explanatory piece – even though you outlined your consumer and created relevant content, in this wide web world you do not know who reads your content when and where. Hence make sure your content is self-explanatory and gives the whole context of what you are talking about
- Incentivize to share – the only other way to spread your content, apart from you sharing it everywhere, is to incentivize people for sharing it. You might have a contest where more than 5 shares would give them some basic gift coupons or discount codes. This would have a domino effect and lead to sharing your content beyond your imagination
- Involve things they care about – make sure that your content is in the same context that your target consumers care about. Use the platforms they are accustomed to, the language they speak and the influencers they respect. You can either involve these influencers as a guest article or include their comments in the topic. It is always a good idea to ask these influencers to share the content on relevant platforms, from their accounts.
- Consistency – Nothing beats good quality content. No matter how many platforms or shares you have, your content will not receive any positive response unless the quality is good and consistent. Drawing web readers to your platform has to be done through well-timed and consistently good quality content. Hence, make sure that your efforts to market and spread the content does not dilute the efforts put in creating the content
- Update – as most of them say, change in inevitable. Make sure you continuously update your content by interacting with your target consumers and understand their changing needs. Your content will definitely receive a good response if the readers feel that they have a say in it. This can be done by creating content on topics that they suggest. This can be done through various ways, enabling comments on your content is the easiest one. Also, this is an arduous task as it is difficult to go through each and every feedback and then gauge the most common feedback.
